Todd Gasper, the Youth Pastor at Ansonia UMC, is committed to helping and encouraging the youth in the community and surrounding areas by letting the youth know how important they are, and how they can live positive lives through fellowship with each other and by studying God's Word.

The youth group usually meets at the church. Along with Bible lessons and discussion, there are games, music, and trips involving mission work or just plain fun. Youth in grades 6 through 12 are invited to attend.

Games and snacks are provided to the youth, but more importantly a time of sharing about how things are going along with Gospel based scripture are also provided.

On some meetings the youth will be encouraged to check out fun things to do.  This involves attending sporting events, concerts, festivals, lock-ins, etc.

The youth program here at Ansonia UMC is dedicated to teaching young people how God can not only impact their lives, but also the lives of their families, friends, and the world in which they live.
